529 BIDDLE ST, Chesapeake City, MD 21915  

The Captain Marshall House, Circa 1870, has long been one of the most distinctive homes in North Chesapeake City, built facing the canal. Sit on the front porch and watch the ships go by or view a town fireworks show without driving anywhere. As you enter the gate through the hairpin fence don't forget to pull the original doorbell to the right of the door. The front door still has the original molded panels and the handsome walnut post and banister which retain their original stained finish. With 9 foot ceilings, with oak and pine floors, the center hall has a library on one side and a parlor on the other which leads to the dining room. A small kitchen is adjacent to the dining room and a large 20th century family room. A back stairway as well as the center hall stairway leads to the family spaces including 5 bedrooms and two full baths, one with original tub and sink. Views of the canal can be seen from these two upper levels. The now closed-in garage space serves as a laundry room/workshop and has a finished loft space above with plumbing that could convert to an in-law suite. The Marshall House still retains its original double lot which the town says could possibly be subdivided. It snuggles up to a town park and picnic pavilion across the back alley and has room to park two cars.You are just a block from the canal, walking/biking trails and walking distance to Schaefer's Canal House. This home has architectural details only found in older homes. With some updates to modernize this home, you can also own a piece of history.
